This is my food diary/restaurant reviews while I’m in Louisiana watching my cousins over the summer.
Now that I’ve been transported to the Cajun land. I might as well sample some of the best cuisine that this fine state has to offer. Stay tuned for my Cajun adventure to begin. :)
6/10/2013 Lemon Grass in Bossier City, LA 3 out of 5 stars
Not exactly Cajun food, but the Shreveport/Boss
ier City area has a good variety of food places. Now being Asian I would say that I’m quite picky when it comes to Asian food. I enjoy Thai food for the spicy fragrant flavors that come from their most popular dishes. I decided to go traditional and I ordered the chicken Pad Thai (it didn’t hurt that it was also on lunch special $6.95). The sweet tea there was excellent, definitely better than regular sweet tea. When my noodles arrived, they looked delicious and piping hot. However, when I started to dig in I realized the temperature was the only thing hot about them. Personally, I would like more spice to be in my Pad Thai considering that’s the culture that the dish represents. All this being said, the flavor of the dish in its entirety wasn’t displeasing it just left me wanting a little bit more flavor. I give it a B+. Overall, this restaurant has a nice atmosphere, friendly staff, and pleasing dishes. If you are just looking for an inexpensive lunch spot, Lemongrass is the place for you.
My time in Louisiana is coming to a close and although the summer is almost over my experience with Cajun food will continue even as my exploration ends.
It has been an amazing summer. Louisiana is a great state filled with delicious cuisine. Thanks for reading this restaurant diary. Stay updated with future explorations in Knoxville, TN where I currently go to school by following my blog and checking out the home page.
Happy Eating! <3
